Christmas time for a foster child can be incredibly tough, being separated from their parents by the courts, through no fault of their own, but that’s where the Holiday Cottage comes in.
For 31 years, the Department of Human Services has sponsored the Holiday Cottage.
Inside, a wall full of wishes.
Each paper ornament has one or two wishes of a foster child.
All you need to do it take one, purchase the present and bring it back to the Holiday Cottage and they take it from there.
The Holiday Cottage will remain open through Monday, Dec. 10.
It’s located at 2765 Calloway Drive, Suite 104 in Northwest Bakersfield.
